    Coronavirus.

    It isn't just her, although she may be used to divert attention from the wider issue - the coppers on site were being paid to enforce the law and chose not to do so, for their own (and other people's) reasons - and all the way through the ranks between the two. There needs to be some genuine...

    Mmm, at least you have some chance of making some progress - someone I know is subject to the attentions of badgers, and they are not at all delicate...

    Mundane facts about your day: Part Deux.

    In one area, there are gigantic clumps of Clematis, reaching up to a good fifty feet. When I got to the main river, I found that the cable car seemed to be having a lay-off for the winter season, and there seemed to be no recent test certificate on display. Further downstream, I found a...

    Mundane facts about your day: Part Deux.

    With the weather looking trustworthy, I headed to the woods. There were some periods of quite intense sunshine. The main road through the wood was devoid of traffic, except for me... I found this odd, unidentified 'memorial'.

    It won't kill it. You can get brown marks, if you walk on it when it is actually frozen, but they will heal. There are lots of myths about grass that just a few seconds thought about reality will dispel. Until December 2010, in that really cold winter, I had cut grass, somewhere, in every...

    What's for dinner/tea?

    For some reason, possibly the smell of the grass, I fancied a salad. Tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms and cheddar, with brown bread. Just right. And I didn't do too much.

    I've just cut the grass, it's been growing a bit lately and it's always nice to get the motor hot in the middle of the winter. Plus, it means I can forget about it again for a good while now. And, especially with a cylinder mower, it's good to be in front of things. It was just about 'dry...

    What's for dinner/tea?

    Mushroom omelette, with far too many* mushrooms. *Obviously, this is not actually possible.

    Stafford Traffic.

    A trawl of the internet would suggest that Benton's Memorials have already made huge progress in restoring the immediate area of the memorials.

    Coronavirus.

    Here's an interesting article, partly about policing the Covid restrictions, written by a chap who is now a Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. https://archive.md/zojrv He is also Sajid Javid's brother.

    Mundane facts about your day: Part Deux.

    The second-nearest acceptable pub is three miles away by the shortest, main road, route and open Friday to Monday, so, it being 'settled weather', I headed out there on the bike tonight. It was a bracing ride, but I survived, and the usual suspects were on hand there, upon my arrival. By the...
